An important George II cast Heraldic Soup Ladle made in London in 1755 by Peter Taylor, together with a pair of matching cast Sauce Ladles.


The Soup Ladle, and matching sauce ladles, are cast in three sections with plain curved handles and plain bowls. The exterior of each bowl is textured to simulate a shell. The top of each piece terminates in a finely detailed heraldic eagle's head. The reverse of the bowl of the soup ladle is engraved with its original scratch weight and the contemporary initials EW. All pieces are in excellent condition, of a very good weight and displaying a very good colour. With regard to Peter Taylor, A.G. Grimwade in 'London Goldsmiths' states that 'although rare, his work, when found, shows a high standard of craftsmanship coupled with a nice use of rococo ornament.' To find a set of this nature, being cast, with herldice devices, is extremely unusual and very rare.

Length of Soup Ladle: 14.75 inches, 36.88cm.
Length of Sauce Ladles: 6.6 inches, 16.5cm.
Weight: 19oz.
